Sharing is caring!

This simple homemade buttermilk biscuits recipe is delicious thanks to using 3 ingredients, one of which is pancake mix! They’re soft, buttery and easy!

These homemade buttermilk biscuits are a breakfast staple in our home. Buttermilk biscuits are a welcomed sight on my breakfast table.

Some of our favorites are biscuits and gravy, biscuits and homemade jam or bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. I also make this homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe when I make chicken pot pies.

Did you know Buttermilk Biscuits are also super simple to make? What if I told you it took just three ingredients? Yup it’s true! And one of those ingredients? Your favorite pancake mix! 

There is no need to head out to Cracker Barrel when you can make these yummy buttermilk biscuits right at home. 

Pancake mix is SO versatile, I always keep it stocked up in my pantry! You have to check out some of my favorite recipes using pancake mix (that aren’t pancakes).

Why You Should Use a Buttermilk Pancake Mix

Because it has everything already in it! There is no need to measure out flour, sugar, a leveling agent, butter, etc.. Just pour your pancake mix into a measuring cup and you are done. Perfect for people who think they can’t bake.

How to Make Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits with Pancake Mix

Be sure to scroll down to get my full printable recipe which has ingredients and instructions! 

You will need: 

  • Buttermilk Pancake Mix
  • milk
  • butter
  • a sheet pan
  • and a biscuit cutter (if you have no biscuit cutter, just use the top of a mason jar or a round glass) 

Get started making your biscuits! 

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix pancake mix and milk until a soft dough forms.
  3. On a work surface, sprinkle more pancake mix.
  4. Knead the dough lightly about 10-12 times.
  5. Roll out the dough to a 1/2 inch thickness.
  6. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits.
  7. Place biscuits on prepared pan and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter.

Can I freeze these homemade buttermilk biscuits?

Yes! Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits freeze so wonderfully too! If you decide to go that route, hold off on the buttering the tops. Let them cool and place the biscuits in a freezer bag.

I like to make a big batch of these buttermilk biscuits and freeze them to have ready to go on the weekends.

Also, you can use different sized biscuit cutters to make your Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits bigger or smaller depending on your preferences.

I’ve been told that my homemade buttermilk biscuits taste a lot like Cracker Barrels! What a compliment!!

Because putting dinner on the table every night can be stressful, I love to serve up breakfast for dinner once a week! 

Be sure to serve these homemade buttermilk biscuits with my blackberry jam! Or if you are a vegetarian, try this vegetarian “sausage and gravy” recipe.  

My husband loves to enjoy these biscuits is with  Sausage and Gravy.

These were so good! They kind of remind me of the Pillsbury grand biscuits flavor wise. Will definitely make again!

Every time I make these my biscuits don’t rise and aren’t fluffy. What am I doing wrong?

I am wondering if your mix is old? That's the only thing I can think of.

Made these today because I was out of flour and wanted to make biscuits. They turned out great! Interesting though that it’s advertised as “2 ingredient” biscuits...pancake mix, milk and butter actually add up to 3 ingredients. Haha :D
